James DeGale came through his first examination as IBF super-middleweight champion with a thrilling unanimous decision victory over Lucian Bute in Quebec.
The 29-year-old DeGale won the title by beating Andre Dirrell on points in May and put the belt on the line against Bute, who was stopped by Carl Froch in 2012.
The bout at the Centre Videotron got off to a blistering start and the pace barely relented as both fighters enjoyed success with quick combinations.
The home crowd were getting right behind Romanian-born Canadian Bute, who left DeGale with a cut above his left eye after an accidental head clash.
DeGale was forced back by his opponent as the match wore on but his superior footwork and speed were enough to convince the judges to score the fight 116-112, 117-111, 117-111 in the Briton's favour.

Tyson Fury's world heavyweight title fight against Wladimir Klitschko will go ahead as planned after a dispute over the ring canvas was resolved.
The 27-year-old Briton was unhappy with the the surface and insisted it was too soft ahead of Saturday's WBA, WBO and IBF title fight in Dusseldorf.
However, Fury's agent Asif Vali eventually confirmed the bout will go ahead.
"It's on after two hours, it's fight time," he tweeted.
Fury, who also said he would not fight if an issue over his gloves for the fight was not sorted out, clearly believes the soft canvas would have slowed him down in what may be a deliberate ploy by Klitschko.
Vali, who got the British Boxing Board of Control involved, said earlier: "Massive health & safety issues fights in jeopardy with the foam and canvas here in Dusseldorf."
